Take Karate over TKD. Kyokushin is probably the best, but if there isn't a place to train near you, go with Shotokan.

To be honest you're better off looking for a boxing school if you ask me. If you can find a quality kick boxing club, that's a decent choice as well. There are a few variations of karate that are actually effective styles. Kyokushin Karate is a very straight forward style where you'll probably find yourself actually sparring with partners. You'll spend some time learning Kata(don't know where I stand on this) but you'll probably have a lot of fun with the bag work, as well as learning some pretty effective technique. You should probably stay away from Tae-Kwon-Do. General concencus seems to be that it's a joke in comparison to some other styles of standup. Muay Thai for example.

For Karate i would go with Kyokushin or Goju Ryu they are 2 i have experience with that were good. Shotokan is said to be good to.

Kyokushin is full contact and with need to be adapted to MMA seeing as in competition it is usually bare knuckle with no padding but no punches to the head although kicks are allowed and i am not sure if knees are.
Kyokushin kaikan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Goju Ryu is excellent and has made my stand up so much smoother and is the main part of my stand up although it would be best to add some Boxing and or Muay Thai with it later but a very good style if you get a good instructor which unfortunately is harder then it should be.(Only 12 kata's)
GÅjÅ«-ryÅ« - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Other styles i have no experience in but suggest you take a look at if possible.

Full Contact Syles(Very much like Kyokushin
Enshin
Ashihara
Seido
Shidokan
(Links of styles on page)
Full contact karate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shotokan
ShÅtÅkan-ryÅ« - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Uechi Ryu
Uechi-ryū - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wado Ryu

Unfortunately Karate has a bad name as a style because of so many fake, bad instructors etc but if you find your self in a good place for Karate it will be extremely good but just be careful of that. watch out for certain things like strange rules, weird teachings, giant belt systems etc.

In my experience, Tae Kwon Do clubs will spar more often (at least the WTF ones that I have experience with) than Karate clubs. I think that any kind of full contact sparring is better than no sparring. Check out both of the clubs, and ask the instructors if they do sparring, and what type of sparring is done . . . in my old club, we would do regular sparring a couple of times a week once the basic kicks were taught.

I did 5 years of Tae Kwon Do in university and competed in a few tournaments. I have been doing Muay Thai for a few months . . . much of what I already know translates across very well. Basically the main differences are that I now make contact with my shin, I keep my hands up higher when sparring, and I kick lower more often. The hip rotation in Muay Thai is the same as the one you learn in TKD, and I have found that using a chambered kick while making contact with the shin makes for a very hard and fast kick. Focus on learning the back kick, turning kick, and front push kick very well . . . these seem to me to be the most effective of the TKD kicks.
